This webinar will present the NOAA Marine Debris Program and its partnerships to curb plastic waste. It will cover the program's overarching portfolio and goals as well as one of its programs - Urban Ocean. Led by Ocean Conservancy and in close collaboration with University of Georgia's New Materials Institute and Circularity Informatics Lab, Urban Ocean provides a platform for city governments to connect with one another as well as with community leaders, academia, and the private sector to develop, share, and scale solutions to the ocean plastics crisis while progressing their broader urban development priorities. This webinar will showcase Urban Ocean's recent findings and outputs, including the results of the Circularity Assessment Protocol in each of the learning cities and the recently released Urban Ocean Toolkit.
